The Adrienne Bailon nude photo scandal sure generated a lot of buzz - so much, in fact, that one wonders if it was all intentional. In today's Face-Off, our writers debate ...


Very Busty

YES by Free Britney

Sunday morning: How many people were thinking about Adrienne Bailon? Maybe a few dozen 'tweens who really love the Disney Channel. Tops.

Monday afternoon: How many people were thinking about Adrienne Bailon nude? Hundreds of thousands of drooling celebrity gossip readers.

Coincidence? No way. This Cheetah Girl was well-versed in the nude photo game long before she showed her spots (and ample, bare a$$) to the world.

Consider that her boyfriend is none other than Rob Kardashian, brother of Kim, and that her employer is Disney, corporate pimp of one Vanessa Hudgens.

It was Vanessa Hudgens' nude photo scandal who paved the way for Bailon's. After her nude pics (supposedly intended for Drake Bell, on a side note, not Zac Efron) appeared online, many called for the High School Muscial star's firing.

Hudgens survived. And became a much bigger star because of it.

It appears Adrienne Bailon followed this formula to the letter, manufacturing some story about "laptop theft" and "personal" pictures meant "to surprise her boyfriend on their anniversary." This paints her as a victim, but still kind of sweet. Diabolical.

The photos themselves - she's still wearing her bra, and not showing any frontal nudity, only that fine booty - are just vanilla enough to ensure she keeps her job, but plenty titillating enough to earn a few million new fans online. Pure genius.

Attention, John Mayer fans, all four of you: There's no need to worry. He's doing okay and refuting recent claims that he's taken on a "depressive demeanor."

"I am not darker, angrier or moodier these days. In fact, it's just the opposite," the douchebag writes on his official blog, adding that his recent pattern of playfully engaging the paparazzi was just a phase he has now put an end to.

"All that's happened is that I have given up on trying to find a way to use unwanted media as a form of entertainment. It still was worth a try."

"A walk to the car isn't the best time to analyze my mood or my disposition, so you'll probably always get a bad read from it," the crooner laments.

"The decision to slide on and off your radar isn't so much my own anymore. But I'm too young to stomp my feet about it," Mayer continues. "All I can do is concentrate on keeping my heart and soul correct and then redecorate around it."

Sounds like a line straight out of The Hills.

Mayer split from Jennifer Aniston in August, then rekindled their romance last month, with the couple celebrating his 31st birthday together.

The bogus pregnancy rumors followed shortly thereafter.

As usual, THG's recap of The Hills will consist of us grading last night's episode, awarding (or deducting) points for the best and worst moments.

This week, Kelly Cutrone sends LC and Whitney to NYC to pull together a show for Men's Fashion Week. Sparks fly for Whitney with a new man. Heidi finds Spencer to be an embarrassment yet again when he confronts her ex-boss at a bar. 

On to the rankings! Chime in with your own!

After Heidi's firing, Spencer suggests they hang out on "their first free night in forever." Minus 5, because they hang out all the damn time, but Plus 7, because they technically are working during their club appearances and staged photo shoots.

No bonus four minutes of ads this week! Plus 3.

At long last, a lack of Justin-Bobby drama. Minus only 2, because we find ourselves sort of missing the entertainment he provides, much as we loathe him.

Plus 10 for airing an episode centered around Whitney Port, and for Whitney Port being particularly expressive (even by her standards). When Kelly said they'd be putting on six shows instead of two, her eyes widened to the size of dinner plates.

This isn't the first time Spencer has cornered Brent out of the blue, and he looks pretty darn surprised and annoyed, telling Spencer off and leaving him uncharacteristically speechless, suggesting that not everything on The Hills is faked. Plus 5.

We sort of feel bad for Alex the model, but if he's not going to be even a little assertive, how can we? Gotta step it up next time, guy. Minus 2.

After Adam invites Whitney and Lauren Conrad to a party, we were introduced to his friend, handsome Australian singer Jay. Minus 4, because as cool as he seems, we already know he's Jay Lyon, and he once dated Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr. The Hills lagging behind real life by three months kills some of the effect at times.

Who else is psyched for The City, though? Plus 10.

TOTAL: +22. Great stuff all around last night. We <3 Whitney. Add your own scores and we'll adjust our aggregate sum as the week goes on!

Britney Spears' youngest son, Jayden James, has been released from a Mississippi hospital after a health scare landed him in the emergency room Sunday evening.

Jayden can be seen leaving the hospital in the arms of his mama below...

Contrary to previous reports of him having a seizure, Jayden suffered a terrible allergic reaction to something he ingested. What could it have been?

There's not much more of an intro needed, really. Just be prepared to laugh / cry / shake your head / shield your eyes at the picture below.

Amy Winehouse stepped out of her North London home with slices of cheese on toast for the celebrity gossip photographers who cover her.

As usual, the wife of Blake Fielder-Civil looked absolutely delightful.

Amy informed the celebrity news reporters that the reason for her not being out recently was a rash, which she needed medical attention for.

Mmm hmm. Those heroin rashes will get you every time. Poor thing.

Gag. These two will stop at nothing to make us nauseous with their public displays of face-sucking, but at least it's for a good cause this time.

The Hills' lovely Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are seen here shortly after they arrived at Autism Speaks, hosting the 6th Annual Acts of Love Celebration, at the Geffen Playhouse in Westwood, Calif. As always, they couldn't restrain themselves ...

Lauren Conrad and Kyle Howard, star of My Boys and her boyfriend of several months now, are going strong. But don't look for him on The Hills anytime soon.

"There's very little that I'm able to keep to myself through the show and through media, so if there's anything I can, I try to," Conrad told USA Today.

Her dates with Kyle Howard take place in more private places. Paparazzi have caught Lauren Conrad with him sometimes, but far less often than you'd think.

Despite starring on the show, some of her BFFs have maintained successful love lives in large part because they've kept them away from the cameras.

"I think that everyone has been in that situation," says The Hills star, who has dated Brody Jenner, Doug Reinhardt, Jason Wahler and Stephen Colletti.

"Lo [Bosworth] has a boyfriend she has been dating over a year, who you never see on camera. Whitney Port also had a boyfriend for a year."

Lauren Conrad says she has had often "a hard time" maintaining both boyfriends and friendships as a result of living in the limelight.

"I think the media and fame tie into that," she says. "It changes people."

Lastly, LC continues to deny rumors that she recently hooked up with Audrina Patridge's loser boyfriend Justin-Bobby on a recent jaunt to Las Vegas.

"I wasn't even there," Conrad said. "I wasn't even in the state!"

Brody Jenner may be looking to spark a new Bromance on his upcoming reality show, but his real priority in life (and claim to quasi-fame) is to mack on the ladies.

Sunday, Brody Jenner was spotted on a Hawaii beach with Playmate girlfriend Jayde Nicole. Playmate of the Year Jayde Nicole, no less. We can forgive him the PDA.

The overworked quasi-star must have needed a vacation from filming The Hills in Cabo and E!'s new Party Monsters ... in Cabo. Anyway, here's Brody doin' his thang ...

On a day that saw her son Jayden James hospitalized after eating something bad back home in Louisiana, Britney Spears also received some good news.

With her career comeback in full swing, it was announced Monday that the 26-year-old was nominated for an award - and one people will actually vote on!

After racking up some big wins at the hilariously rigged and meaningless MTV VMAs, Spears is up for a People's Choice Award for How I Met Your Mother.

The category? "Favorite scene-stealing star." She's certainly that.

Brit Brit is up against Luke Perry and Robin Williams, both of whom were nominated for their guest appearances on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

The star played a dorky receptionist named Abby in two episodes of the CBS show. On the first, in March, she helped HIMYM score its best ratings ever.

Spears has been on a tear professionally, receiving huge applause when she performed at Madonna's Sticky & Sweet concert in L.A. (above) last week.

Her new single, "Womanizer," not only features Britney Spears nude - it hit #1 on the Hot 100 Billboard chart in October - her first #1 song since 1999!

This piece of news is not particularly controversial (it's no Adrienne Bailon nude picture scandal), or pertaining to any major celebrities, but this clip from MSNBC's Morning Joe earlier today is still great comic relief for your Monday afternoon.

In fact, it needs to be seen and heard to be believed.

In discussing Barack Obama's victory in the presidential election, host Joe Scarborough spoke ... in a way you don't normally hear on a news show.

To make matters worse (better?), the genius could not even seem to grasp exactly why his show's panelists were shocked and awed afterward ...
